Episode-351- An Interview with Bill Wilson about Permaculture — 7 Comments

  1. Awesome show! Love that permaculture stuff. I’ll be checking out the midwestpermaculture site.

    thanks, Bill and Jack!

  2. Great show…
    About the need to create community and not wake up one day and realize “where is everybody”.
    That’s the hardest part I think. I’ve woken up and said that same thing. Where are my comrades in this? It’s very very hard to ‘create’ a neighborhood in this process… to end up getting a group close at hand that does, as you both said, create the most security (and it most fun and affordable). Has anyone done this well – beyond just with one’s family? I find it very difficult and continue to find a large peice of land with multiple good house sites, so maybe – just maybe – my friends and people with similar approaches will take part. It’s not possible when we are 20 minute drives+ from one another who are endeavoring toward the same approach as we are. We need to be walking distance I think, to activate the possibilities mentioned, like shared infrastructure and deep security.

  3. Awesome show. I’m going to try to go to the april course in Detroit! Sounds awesome! Thanks for turning my life around!

    BTW I think you forgot to turn “record” off at the end of the show. There was like 5 minutes of “off the air” conversation after the traditional show ending.

  4. Jack, Peak Oil is not the threat, Peak Government is. In the 1850\\\\\\\’s we faced Peak Whale Oil, alternatives came forth. Now the Federal Government spikes alternatives (coal and nuclear) while we waste oil making electricity. You are on target, wait until Peak Government creates Peak Food.

  5. I understand that peak oil is accurate and that we are now past the point of peak oil. I understand many of the current events have to do with this downturn and it won’t be long before the main stream media and population wake up and understand what is going on. For me and my family, we are preparing for the life after the crash.
